A Statement on Limited COVID-19 Exposures on Campus

March 13, 2020

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health has confirmed to the University of Pennsylvania that some members of its community have had a confirmed COVID-19 exposure.

Recipients of these notifications understandably reached out to administrators for answers. Public health officials who conducted contact investigations and risk assessments reassured Penn that none of these exposures were considered high risk. In an abundance of caution, however, the University notified the affected community  members of this exposure.

There is no further information that we can provide about this incident. We assure you that  University remains committed to the health and safety of its campus in these challenging times.
